traditional french oak table

French oak dining table                £275 Nice looking french table with turned legs. The base is all solid oak while the top is veneered.

large antique pine kitchen dining table

antique pine table with three drawers           £575 big plank top refectory type table, made of pine around 1900. There are three drawers on one side. It’s had a lot of wear over the years, giving it a wonderfully characterful feel. The legs and cross bars look almost carved into bone shapes. There would’ve been a long central bar but it would be difficult to replicate the age of the rest of the piece and, as it seems strong enough without it, we’ve not tried. We have, however, replaced the bottom section of two legs and a crossbar’s ends, using oak, as it seemed more in keeping than newly cut pine. It’s finished in oil, to give some protection without too much gloss. large antique pine table   £575 dimensions: 215cm x 84cm x 80.5cm high free delivery to Hastings, Bexhill and Eastbourne; approx £30 by courier to Brighton, Ashford, Maidstone, Haywards Heath, Canterbury and most of Sussex and Kent.

large vintage baroque style dining table and chairs

Vintage Italian extending table and chairs             £1200 Very large extending table made, we think, in Italy in the 1950’s. An unashamed celebration of the Rococo, or Baroque styles of the 1700’s, it’s incredibly sumptuous with the most over-the-top details of swags and flowers and fruit.. It’s utterly ridiculous…and beautiful! There is a central leaf which fits in when the others are pulled out, giving over 2.5m length; enough to seat ten, maybe twelve guests. Though we just have the six chairs to go with it: two carvers and four ‘normal’. There are some defects: a couple of pieces of carving are missing round the table top (worst is shown in the pics); a finial is missing from one chair top, and a flower (same chair); the top is very faded (though, typically, not the less used central leaf), though that is not without charm; there are general scuff and scratches to the top but, again, characterful rather than ugly. In general, it’s pretty darn good. dimensions: 212cm long (closed) 263cm (open) 111cm wide,  77cm high free delivery to Hastings, Bexhill and Eastbourne; Brighton, Ashford, Maidstone, Haywards Heath, Canterbury and most of Sussex and Kent.

coffee shop tables, made to measure in old pine

coffee shop tables, made to measure in old pine

We made these cafe tables for a coffee shop in Bloomsbury, West London They are simple, strong and hard wearing, yet full of character as they’re made by hand using reclaimed antique pine.  The legs are cut from old joists whilst the tops are antique pine floorboards. The design is deliberately basic and straight-lined, to give an industrial feel. Much of the original marks and nail holes can still be seen, though we’ve ensured that the finish is smooth and splinter free. The tops are made from several planks, glued, clamped and sanded, and any significant holes are filled so that the surfaces are easy to keep clean. Generally, we finish these tables with oil, though they could be varnished or waxed (wax is useless, though it looks nice; vice versa for varnish..). The bases can be painted and distressed or the whole lot can be stained. Please call or email to discuss various other options, like cross bars or chunky tops n stuff.. These examples vary from 60cm x 60cm x 75cm but almost any size can be made. Prices vary according to size and quantity but these ones would work out about £160 each, if you had a few, or £195 for just one. Delivery can be arranged...
